So, as Thumper said, lets give them some gratitude. As I saw on this forum, the melodic symphonic metal bands are much appreciated. Paradise Lost was one of the pioneer bands that used the clean angelic woman voices vs. death grunt male voices. They started in the early 90s with a mediocre death metal album “Lost Paradise”. But just one year later, 1991, a touch of genius stroke the band and the “Gothic” album was born. A milestone for the death/doom/gothic metal genre, “Gothic” was maybe the first metal album who introduced the female voice in such a rough music. The album is not very catchy, is maybe kind of unfriendly and primitive but from “Gothic” on the sympho-metal genre started to spread. They did not necessarily follow this path as a female voice fronted band but the Pandora box was opened for many other followers.
“Shades of God” (1992) more doom metal oriented is marked by the doom/gothic anthem “As I Die”:
I consider “Icon” 1993, a true doom metal masterpiece, their climax.
“Draconian Times” 1995, their most successful achievement, contains more catchy songs, a much cleaner sound, with a normal voice (no growls).
…And then came the so called second era with a more commercial electronic sound and style with synthesizers and pop oriented. Not very bad, catchy tunes, focused to mainstream metal fans.
"One Second" (1997)
"Host" (1999) - with Depeche Mode influences
To be continued…
